A terrorist attack targeted a train transposing phosphates in the central Syrian governorate of Homs in the noon of July 21.

The Syrian Ministry of Transport said in an official statement that the train was struck by improvised-explosive devices (IEDs). This caused a derail. A fire also erupted in the train’s engine and the phosphates’ containers.

“Terrorists infiltrated the railway site, between the areas of al-Fajwa and al-Basirah east of Palmyra, and planted several IEDs on the railroad leading to the phosphate mines in the area of Khunayfis in the eastern Homs countryside,” the statement reads.

According to the ministry, specialists are currently working to fix the railroad in order to resume the transportation of phosphate from Khunayfis’ mines.

Last year, the Syrian Parliament approved a contract allowing Russia’s Stroytransgaz to invest the phosphate mines in Homs for up to 50 years. The mines produce around 2.2 million tons of phosphate a year.

Earlier this month, a similar terrorist attack targeted a gas pipeline linking al-Shaer gas fields in eastern Homs with Ebla gas plant. Prior to that, a sabotage operation damaged five underwater pipes of Banias’ oil terminal on the Syrian coast.

No group has claimed responsibility for any of these three attacks, which were all carried out in a professional manner.

      I am thinking EXACTLY the same thing, Nassim :)

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Well the limey gits destroyed the Ottoman infrastructure and railway to Hejaz by these tactics. The limey SAS faggots and Americunt CIA is now directly waging the terror war in Syria and the whole goal is to destroy the infrastructure and economy. It is time to destroy the Idlib terror enclave and also recruit more forces for the Axis of Resistance to hold ground.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The fact is that the Americunt arseholes and CIA are now running the terror campaign in Syria like they did in 1980’s Afghanistan. The headchoppers had failed and now mercenaries are being used to destroy Syrian infrastructure and economy. It is time Russia, Syria and Iran beef up boots on the ground and start inflicting losses on all illegal terrorist proxies in Syria.
